Carlos Rolón: I Tell You This Sincerely…
April 9 – July 31
Internationally recognized for his elaborately crafted paintings, ornate sculptures and site-specific installations that incorporate social practice, Carlos Rolón/Dzine returns home for his first Chicago solo exhibition in 12 years. In some of his most personal work to date, several installations compose immersive environments that reflect the artist’s memories and distinctive biography while incorporating carefully crafted objects, paintings and sculptures – still investigating notions of conspicuous consumption and urban artifact.
